Thermal Imaging Cameras Bring Visibility to the Spectrum

Thermal imaging devices and cameras can make heat energy visible to the human eye. This allows for complete analysis of the environment or an object. The thermal image produced by these devices is a thermogram. The highly-sophisticated technology behind thermal cameras allows heat signatures to be reproduced in a format that features in the visible spectrum of light. Thermal imaging cameras do not indicate a single temperature for an object, rather they reflect temperature variations from cold through hot and display them in a spectrum of colours. As human beings, our vision is limited to visible light on the electromagnetic spectrum. However, this is but a small portion of all light that is available on the spectrum. A much greater percentage is infrared radiation, the spectrum of light that requires specialized thermal imaging cameras.

Movie Review: “Assassin’s Creed”

Starring
Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Charlotte Rampling, Michael K. Williams
Director
Justin Kurzel

“Assassin’s Creed” is not the video game adaptation that fans have been waiting for. What makes the action film most disappointing is that it comes from director Justin Kurzel, who crafted last year’s visceral adaptation of “Macbeth,” which also starred Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. Kurzel’s latest has style to spare, but it’s missing the soul and emotion from his previous work.

Calum Lynch (Fassbender) has just been given a second chance. Michael Leslie, Adam Cooper and Bill Collage’s script opens with the convicted murder on death row. With his last words, Calum says that he’ll meet his father in hell, but instead of dying, he wakes up, disturbed and shocked, in an unknown location and greeted by Sofia (Cotillard), a scientist who wants to rid the world of violence. She informs Calum that one of his ancestors, Aguilar de Nerha, was an assassin in 15th century Spain, and he has the power to relive his memories through a contraption called the Animus. Sofia and her father, Rikkin (Jeremy Irons), are looking for the “apple,” a MacGuffin that will cure people of violence and destroy free will, and Calum and Aguilar’s memories can lead them right to it. Despite the high stakes, most of the film’s events are inconsequential.

Calum is a blank slate. We know his terrible past, and he describes his aggressive personality, but there’s little internal life to the character, which isn’t true of most of Fassbender’s performances. The world and the rules are the primary focus of the script, not the characters. In the first act, there’s plenty of information revealed but very little of it regards Calum and why we should care about him and what’s beneath the aggression. The character’s underwhelming attempts at comedic relief don’t help matters, either.
